The photo workshop will include in-depth, hands-on photo instruction as we photograph reptiles and amphibians, flowers, butterflies and birds. We will spend time in blinds experiencing a photographing with special set-ups for hummingbirds in the gardens and around feeders. Landscape photography will also be explored as will photoshop skills and image workflow.
The ‘ultra-luxury’ Pico Bonito Lodge is one of Central America’s hottest new rainforest destinations, a paradise that’s home to half of Honduras’s 700 bird species—from the endangered and endemic Honduran Emerald hummingbird to the uncommon Keel-billed Motmot to the beautiful, brilliant blue Lovely Cotinga. This trip will be based at the lodge for the full trip, with day-trips to other great photo locations, plus and optional extension Cayos Cochinos, small islands in the Caribbean. Special Lodge Amenities: With a swimming pool in the garden and available in-room massage (additional fee) and a spa, this could be the perfect getaway for a non-photographer companion as well!
Situated between two fast-moving rivers—the Coloradito and the Corinto—the luxury lodge nestles in the lap of Pico Bonito National Park, where 270,000 acres of tropical rainforest rise from near sea level to the 8,000-foot peak that gives the park its name. Much of this land is unexplored and unexploited. Jaguars and Pumas still hunt here as howler monkeys roar to proclaim their territory.
CARIBBEAN EXTENSION (OPTIONAL)
The Caribbean extension will take us to Cayos Cochinos for two nights to enjoy snorkeling/underwater photography, island culture and more wildlife!
